Food purists will delight in the time spent in Avondale, near St. John’s, with chef Lori McCarthy. As a champion of the eat-it-wild food movement, she takes travelers on walking tours to learn about the foodways of her province. Depending on the season, guests try their hand at meat curing and smoking, berry picking, coastal foraging, and more, as McCarthy relates tasty tales of Newfoundland’s colourful culinary history. Sessions conclude with a variety of homespun treats from land and sea. Visitors come away with an appreciation for the natural way of looking at food — and a full belly.
